Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: We call it, Gnome City. It's a small space, but we have a lot of stuff out there so it has to be organized. We like to sit out there and read a magazine or just watch the plants grown.
How did you create it? We put down the pre-fab wood slats (which come in 12" x 12" squares and snap together), then added the tables we have bought over the years for next to nothing, then the fountain, the plants and the gnomes. There are intersting things to look at like the hand made pots in interesting shapes and colors, not the mention some of the plants themselves.
Recommended store, site, product or resource? California Cactus Center is a great source for cacti and succulents. Bed, Bath and Beyond has great prices on outdoor furniture.
